Those compact wooden knife racks are very popular very accessible in terms of price. However, they’re not the only options and surely not the best. You’re probably familiar with magnetic knife racks. They’re a much simpler version of the wooden knife rack and they also present a number of other advantages as well. We’re going to enumerate some of them and then offer some examples showing you how you can integrate these items into the kitchen.
First of all, a magnetic knife holder is much more hygienic than a wooden one. The wooden racks are absorbent and they hold water and develop bacteria. They are also almost impossible to thoroughly clean. Another great advantage is that these magnetic racks can be attached to the wall or to the cabinet doors where they’re safer for the children. Keep them out of their reach but still handy so you can easily use them when needed.
Moreover, a magnetic knife rack occupies considerably less space than any other type of knife racks. It’s basically just a long and thin strip that can be mounted on the wall or on the cabinet doors. It occupies no counter space. Also, you can use it for other kitchen utensils as well. You can have two rows, one for knifes and one for your metal spatulas and other utensils. Place them either horizontally or vertically and use them to beautifully display your collection of knifes.
